Russia promises nuclear war if Hillary Clinton is elected. And that's from NBC, "America's Network Of (broken) Record," so you know it must be true -- or at least as true any of Brian Williams's tales of derring-do in dire and desperate, er, derpumstances.
Bite me, Russian government. I decided on Gary Johnson early, when neither party had anything even close to an acceptable candidate* and that has not changed. Point an H-bomb at me? You did that already! Naval Avionics has been in Indianapolis since before the Cold War and the Army has been writing paychecks for every soldier in this town for almost as long: I'm already a casualty of WW III. I was born dead. Every town I have ever lived in was a target.
I was born on (or just after, historians squabble) the very tail end of the Baby Boom. I grew up with this playing out inside my head.
What you call Hell, I call home. Bring it. Vlad. Let's make the rubble bounce and we'll see which side bred the best cockroaches afterwards. Are you so stupid that you really think we have any reason not to?
In other news, I'm exhausted all the time and I am tired of trying to turn the gibberish that comes off my fingers into intelligible text. The Prednisone side effects linger and so does the atypical pneumonia. I can't keep waking up and coming up with new stuff every morning any more. I'm going to try preloading interesting items as they occur and see if I can't buy myself some time.
Found out yesterday I'll be working random shifts through this weekend and then getting one day off the weekend after next. Meanwhile, the leaves continue to fall. The overtime doesn't add up to enough to pay for yard work.
* "Acceptable:" you know, Bernie Sanders didn't look all that bad compared to the eventual nominees: Presidents have limited powers and while Democrat politicians like to talk socialism, the overwhelming majority of them are owned by mechantilist capitalists who, however mealy-mouthed they are, shudder at the thought of "feeling the Bern." He couldn't've done all that much harm -- no more than Mr. Obama has, at least, which is plenty but the trains are not less on time than they were eight years ago -- and Congress would have spent four years wetting themselves in fear, waiting for their owner's banks and telecom companies to get nationalized by Executive fiat.† In hindsight, that image is pretty appealing. Seriously, him or Sec. Clinton, which one is worse? I'm going with her.
† Not an actual power of the President. Not that it has stopped them in the past.
